Leach paints his huge landscapes from memory in his studio, working with old since the 19-60s. He prefers to feature overgrown vistas and raking, and his style subtly suggests there is an untouched, primordial quality to these scenes of nature. Leach shares his passion for art as a painting and drawing instructor for Louisiana State University and Lamar University in Texas.
